I have a real problem with Rocky every time someone

comes to the door he goes crazy jumping on them just to be friendly. He's a great dog in all ways but that jumping is overwhelming. I tried stepping on his leash and putting him in his crate but he then barks . He is great with us but with his weight he can knock you over. My husband gets really upset because he won't listen . I can't always let him out every time someone comes in for a visit. Any suggestions would help. I 'm thinking about taking him for training. My grandson's are small and I can't let him jump on them.
